A Christmas pantomime produced Dec. 31, 1759, representing Harlequin's invasion of Parnassus and the territory of Shakespeare. Genest, "English stage," vol. 4, p. 580, suggests that the pantomime is founded on one acted in 1741 at Goodman's Fields. Possibly it was "Harlequin Englishman, or the Frenchman bit." The songs are printed in his "poetical works," vol.2.--Barton collection catalog
